Unfortunately, its not just GM with minor issues like fit and finish. I've owned trucks and cars from several manufacturers. Quality has definitely gotten progressively worse over the years over all brands.
I haven't done anything in regards to my reverse lights to this truck, yet. But, on previous trucks, I installed Rigid light pods. Easy to mount under the bumper and the light output was excellent. Plus, the 3 way switch was great. I could use the lights while hooking up a trailer at night or for anything for that matter. If I remember correctly, the kit was around $300 which is kind of steep for lights but it was well worth it.
I hit mine by mistake and the tailgate opened and hit the concrete wall in my parking garage. Minor damage but man was I mad. I'm pretty sure that's the only time that button has been used.
Same on mine. I checked after they were installed to make sure they weren't hitting anything and they were just barely touching at the rear of the cab on the mount. Shaved maybe 1/16 of an inch off and the noise is still there. I've gotten used to it over the last year though. When I hear it walking away after parking it, I know the steps are up where they belong. Same when I get in to drive away.
I have driven Dodge, Ford, Chevy and GMC trucks my entire adult life. In my opinion, they all suffer from quality control issues and they get worse with every new vehicle I buy. I hate to say it but they dont make things like they used to. Having said that, I have been pretty happy with my 19. It has just shy of 40,000 miles on it and it has yet to be in the shop for anything other than recalls and oil changes.
My AT4 has the same issue. Not all the time but intermittently. I've looked around under the rear end but can't seem to find anything obvious. I've seen other posts about the same issue on here but no solution that I know of.
Same issue for me. Slight intermittent whistle that started after about 8 months of ownership. No way to duplicate it and I cant predict it either. Frustrating because I know taking it in for just this issue would probably be pointless unless I get lucky and the noise happens to start when I pull it in the shop.
I've had mine on for a year now and they have been loud from day one. I checked to make sure they weren't hitting anything or binding up somehow after they were installed. I found that they were hitting a bracket for a body mount at the rear of the cab just as they came to a stop. I ground a bit off the corner and painted it over to prevent rust and they clear it now. However, they're still loud. I guess its just the mechanism and I have grown used to it.
Same thing happened to me (minus the stroller). I hit my button by mistake in my parking garage at work. Its a tight garage so I back into a spot so its easier to get out. I somehow managed to hit the button and the concrete wall stopped the tailgate. Not much damage, just some scrapes that I covered with touch paint. I may have it repaired at some point. I did not get the warning message or any audible alerts either.
